RE: 2003 Newmar Dutch star help #2

Excellent quick check on fuel issue Doug. When it stops, does it stumble as it stops OR is a clean stop like pressing the off switch? Stumble is fuel related. Clean stop is control related.

RE: Class A Towing trailer with car and Motorcycle

Something to think about is the weight balance of hanging a harley on the back. Yes, the ride height control valves will compensate to keep the rear up, but you WILL be taking weight of the front tires due to the fulcrum effect from the harley. Too little weight on the front tires results in poor steering. I have a friend with a bmw bike on a hydralift mounted on the back of a newell. He can tell a difference in the handling with and without the bike. Just something to chew on.

Thanks for posting the solution. Glad you got it fixed.

I don’t normally disagree with Doug, but i have successfully rebuilt HWH slideout cylinders and locking cylinders with readily available seals and o rings. Its not rocketsurgery. The hard part is getting the cylinders out. A trick if you need to extend or retract a cylinder is to disconnect the OTHER cylinder, cap the lines, and use the extend retract button. Of course the cylinder must be disconnected from the room.

Delete. Misleading information.

RE: Vibration, Resonating Noise

If you have a smartphone there are several vibration analysis apps available. Mine will give you frequency. If you know driveshaft rpms, tire diameters, and other rotating part info at a given speed, then the math is simple to figure out what is the likely culprit . The phone can help you find the he location by moving it around and measuring the amplitude.

RE: 2006 Sunova 12V ground problem.

Physically disconnect the dead house batteries. If you somehow have them connected through a merge or combine switch then the charged chassis batteries will behave with all the symptoms you describe.

RE: Used class a ?

Mine has 252k at the moment, and 7000 hrs on the gen. I have no hesitation about doing a loop of the country every year. Have the fluids analyzed on the oil, coolant, and transmission. Have a competent mechanic look it over. Be prepared to replace air bags, air conditioners, and appliances at that age. After all you would not buy a 20 yr old house and not expect to replace appliances and hvac equipment. The drivetrain is the most robust part of the motorhome. Look for signs of water ingress

RE: Air Bag issue

Yes i have actually done this. My coach weighs 53K, significantly more than the Forza. I lost an innner drive tire which took out an airbag and the height control valve. My rig sits on the tires if the air bag is not inflated so i could not be towed. I was on the side of I 40 and had to get the coach to a safe place.

RE: Air Bag issue

If it is indeed an airbag, you can raise the coach with a bottle jack, and make wood inserts to put into the suspension. The weight should go across the grain. Use treated lumber. Disconnect and plug the airline to the height control valve. If the coach has a tag, it will need support also. It will ride like a wagon, it will get you out of SD.

RE: Meter

Ivylog told you what to do. Instead you want to put a thermostat in it different from what Cummins provided or alter the fan setup different than what Spartan specified. I dont get it.

RE: SR19 from Sutton, WV to Beckley, WV

You will have enough pucker on the interstate in WV. No way I would drive a car that route just to avoid the tolls. I lived there for five years so my comments are not based on looking at a map. I on e thought i would take that scenic route in a Class B. In 15 miles I bailed and went back to the interstate
